I was asked a question about this orphan file, so I filled in all the blanks.
Guglielmo Marconi was born in Bologna, Italy, on April 25, 1874 as the second son of an Italian father and an Irish mother.
Marconi was 20 years old when he embarked on a study of works by Heinrich Hertz (1857-1894). He began experimenting on the application of Hertzian waves to the transmission and reception of messages over a distance-without wires. In the early summer of 1895 Marconi was first to transmit a signal that was received at a distance of about 2km, despite a hill in its path.
Marconi registered his new company as the Wireless Telegraph and Signal Company in 1897. In December of 1898, the first wireless equipment manufacturing plant in the world was set up in an old silk factory in Hall Street in Chelmsford near London.
The age of long-distance wireless communication was born on December 12, 1901, as Marconi and his assistants were able to hear the three short bursts of the Morse code 'S' at the receiving station set up in a hospital in Signal Hill, St. John's Newfoundland.
Guglielmo married (1) Beatrice O'Brien on 1905.
Children of Guglielmo MARCONI and Beatrice O'Brien are:
Degna MARCONI, b. 1908761, d. 1998761.
Gioia MARCONI, b. 1916761, d. 1996761.
Giulio MARCONI, b. 1910761, d. 1971761.
His contribution to wireless telegraphy would earn him the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics which he shared with Karl Ferdinand Braun, head of the Physics Institute at the University of Strasbourg.
